Please express your concerns about tags (such as a title tag) on an article's talk page, instead of removing the tag itself. :) Thanks!


At 18:52, Oct 02, 2007

Maniac18Maniac said:

It's best just to leave the tag once you add it, for discussion. :) Your choice of a title change was a good one, so I felt no need for it to be removed --

Thanks for calling attention to several very poor articles tonight. You'll notice that some of them are already gone.

If you find an article that's so bad that it's not worth keeping it around long enough to discuss, you can use {{speedy}}. For example, if the article contains essentially no content or if it has content that is inappropriate to the point of being offensive, try the speedy tag.

Hey there!

Thanks for uploading images on how to French braid hair. I see that you asked for permission from the copyright holder - did they respond? If so, could you send a copy of that response to Permissions -at- ? Let me know, thanks!

I got the image off google. I just typed in 'raviolis and sauce' (or something to that effect) and that's what I found 1 or 2 pages later.

Thanks for moving that to the appropriate section. I was thinking about it and was going to do that too. I appreciate people collaborating and helping my article How to Get What You Want from a Bureaucrat to survive and grow. I'd also appreciate it if you could add a tip or two that has helped you with a bureaucrat, but just wanted to say thanks for helping.

Hey Ally!

Thanks for adding those fantastic images to How to Do Needlepoint. I noticed that you mentioned you had asked the copyright holder for permission - did you actually receive permission? If so, feel free to clarify that on the image pages and on the article, so that it's clear we have obtained permission to use the images. You can write something like "[link] Original source, shared with permission". Anyway, thanks for the good stuff you're doing around here. You're really bringing articles up a huge notch with your contributions!

Hey there!

I just want to ask you a little question: why did you revert my edits on How To Become a Pharmacist? I noticed it just now and I was wondering what did I do wrong so I can make sure not to do it again.

Thanks ~~Dee

Hi! Just an FYI -- the spammer tag is for people who put external links in the text of articles and not for spambots. Also, there was no need to send the user the tag since I had already blocked them for 3 months for spamming and notified the user of that in the message before yours.

FlicketyFlickety said:

Thanks for your question Ally. I was a little surprised that it mattered so much to the next editor to undo the effort I went to in making what I thought was an enhancing edit. I just happen to think it looked nicer but it's your call, the articles are everybody's.

Thank you so much for your GREAT work on RC patrol.

BTW, in the process of patrolling RC myself, I noticed that you rolled back a few edits that were not vandalism as far as I can tell.

Yes, neither of those edits was perfect, but they certainly weren't terrible. Since we want to encourage new editors, it is best to leave edits like this and tidy them up or tag them for further cleanup.

I'm sure you just missed these things in the process of doing rapid fire RC patrol. Very easy mistake to make. I do want to thank you again. You really are doing great work on RC patrol. Please keep it up!

I've been coming to WikiHow for the articles for a while now but i have never edited or participated till now. I want to know how to quote someone in a talk page. Can you help?


At 20:14, Dec 30, 2007 said:

Thanks but we'll see.

I was considering creating an account a few months back, and I may return to do so later. I really don’t know.

Sadly, the reason I wanted to know how to quote, was things people I knew were saying before Christmas left me a little confused. And when I checked the site and found out it was true, a lot disappointed. Maybe it wouldn’t have made much difference. I don’t know.
